6:20 pm
for this time of year, 83. we blew right by it and hit 86. the last time without arm as 1945. he started the day at 59 silly crazy warm day from start to finish. if you are spending time outdoors you are probably toasty. we picked up to cover out there that will help keep the temperatures cooler as we head into the next couple of hours but keep in mind we are coming off, not just here but across most of the area from lincolnton 83 cells very 82 and places like agree statesville in morganton around 80 degrees as well. if you want cooler weather you will be able to find if i have to jump into the mountains to do so. we had a cold front pushed through the area today so was very weak. we saw cloud buildup there are the tiny potential to see rain. it certainly did not happen. thursday will be nice and sunny but late in the day on thursday
6:21 pm
front on a lot of moisture. it will blow through and leave us dry heading into friday but we will see the winds picking up behind it talking gusts of 25 to 30 miles an hour friday. if you are an allergy sufferer it will probably fairly uncomfortable for you. tonight 50 degrees a little bit cooler than it was last night and then of course thursday st. patrick's day we will come in at 76. the winds aren't too bad out of the west at five to 10 miles an hour mostly sunny to partly cloudy. in 10 minutes i will show you seven-day forecast. several warnings and you are probably not going to like the temperatures. >> brian thank you. coming up one day after super
6:22 pm
6:23 pm
live on fox 46 bill: welcome back. a record number of north carolina voters to the polls
6:24 pm
choices for the presidential candidates. hillary clinton easily won over bernie sanders while donald trump still rolling over all the republicans. fox rather than sister and i joining us to talk about this. thank you so much for joining us great to see you. i'm sure will shock you but i want to talk about donald trump 814 more states last night including north carolina. he is really dominating the south. why do you think that is? >> he has been clobbering them. isn't just the south. he is one of number of states besides the south. loki is tapping into a lot of dissatisfaction across the country in the republican party respond. a lot of people are angry and they want to throw the bum out. anyone who has served as a congressional politician. he also makes his promisesto people and he says he would make america great again and that resonates a lot of americans.
6:25 pm
trump is winning. bill: the story of the night marco rubio deciding to suspend his campaign paid a one point he was one of the gop favors going in. where d.c. has poured supporters rally behind him? it's hard to believe they would go around trump. >> bill you are right there not likely to go to donald trump. here's the other thing coming doesn't have a lot of supporters. he only won minnesota so it's not as though there's a lot to be divvied up with marco rubio. i think to the extent he will have any impact it will be the state of pennsylvania. at the end of april they had their primary -- have their primary and governor john kasich is hoping to win there. governor john kasich was born near krupp there are periods next to all ohio and it's not a big delegate count. should he win in pennsylvania will give him the magic number of 1207 delegates but that's a big chunk of delegates in that case again when it makes it more
6:26 pm
reach that number. that is where you will see a chance that somebody else might win a winner-take-all with substantial numbers making it more difficult for donald trump to get his numbers. right now donald trump is on his way to get all the delegates. he needs 1037 but a lot can happen between now and then. l speaking of governor kasich he was able to win his first day taking his home state of ohio. how important was that for trumps competition to get to this broke her convention and if they are able to somehow get their how do you see american voters are reacting? >> i think they have a much different narrative if donald trump had won ohio and the republican can win the presidency in november they await the electoral college is set up unless he or she wins florida and ohio. that would have been a good sign for donald trump had he won ohio. that's not to take away from his other great wins. he got a tub of rate wins. he is on a roll and doing very
6:27 pm
bit more difficult than it does give oxygen tube governor john kasich. governor kasich would have been like center review. if rubio lost florida he was out of and of governor kasich lost ohio he would have been out. a much smoother path for trump to get to the convention. makes it difficult for donald trump am only get to the convention the republican convention in cleveland ohio in late july is going to likely be contested and of governor kasich has a lot of delegates they will give him more power than the party. all bets are off when we get to this broke her convention that we knows for sure but i will say one thing if we go to a brokered convention donald trump has almost a 1237 but not enough so it has to be brokered. i would be surprised if they don't get the non-mission to donald trump and come november supporters will go out in both for whoever is the nominee of the republican party because
6:28 pm
trump eight my guess is they feel the party elites have somehow push their candidate out of the way unfairly but i think that's a problem for the republican party come november. bill: plenty of chama on the republican side. hillary clinton dominate the last night. she like trump dominating the south. you kind of see this as the beginning of may be the nail in bernie's coffin? he is struggling with the delegates, isn't he? >> is indeed and it was important that hillary win illinois. there's something about winning your home state and it's a northern state. i think bernie sanders is not going to get the nomination. unless something happens to secretary clinton she now has the nomination locked up however senator bernie sanders is going to stay in their till the bitter end because when it comes time to have the convention neither she has a number of delegates he will want to have influence on the democratic platform.
6:29 pm
between now and the convention. at least i don't think so but if something happens to secretary clinton if she is vulnerable with this e-mail scandal, things sanders. right now looks like secretary clinton, she has a lot of bruises. bernie sanders has given her run for money. hasn't been easy to lock up these delegates but it looks like she's on the way to getting the numbers he needs. bill: last question before you wrap up a big announcement from president obama announcing his precourt there are supreme court nomination of merrick garland. coming into this a lot of people expecting obama would announce a nominee that was the minority, somebody progressive. what do you see with this choice? >> i think what president obama is his constitutional duties says he shall nominate someone. nominated someone he thought
6:30 pm
senate because he had been confirmed in 1997. six or seven senators voting for him are in the u.s. senate and i think he picked a more moderate candidate for the bench because he was hoping to get his candidate on the bench. if he gets a more progressive one the chances him him getting a republican senator virtually none. think the reason the president nominated someone who is more moderate is because he was hearing and confirm him. bill: some great information. credit thank you for joining us tonight. it was great seeing you. have a good one. >> thank you bill. still to come tonight president obama announcing his pick to replace justice scalia and the supreme court. we were just talking about this. we will find a listen up republicans say they will block the choice until after the election. hey ryan. >> hey bill just as you got use to those warm temperatures things are changing.

6:34 pm
>> he earned overwhelming bipartisan praise from senators and legal experts alike to. >> at the moment announcement senate republicans pointed out that this time around garland's nomination is going nowhere nowhere. smith is president will not fill this vacancy. the senate will not confirm this nominee. opposing lawmakers say it's not about garland's qualifications. about the process referring to the time-honored tradition under both republicans and democrats do not confirm a nominee during a presidential election season. >> it seems clear president obama made this nomination not with the intent of seeing the nominee confirmed but in order to politicize it for purposes of the election. >> meantime judicial watchdogs appear split on the present spec. >> the goal missed nominations to get a fifth sol of the breaux to join the four liberals on the court radius proven himself to be a respected jurist during his tenure on the d.c. circuit.
